Name Root:
This name is linked to three different roots: 1) From the Ancient Germanic “*ermunaz,” meaning “strong, whole, tall, exalted, whole, great, powerful” (making it a relative of Ermenrich). 2) From the Gothic “*amal / ama-l,” meaning “work, brave, diligent, the Amali” (making it a relative of Amalric). 3) From the Old High German “*haimaz,” meaning “home, house” (making it a relative of Henry). The second element is “-ric,” from the Ancient Germanic “*rīkijaz,” meaning “kingly, royal, noble, mighty, distinguished, powerful, rich.” It is probable that one Germanic form was merged into a single name and later generated its variants.

Black is the color of the hidden, the secretive and the unknown, creating an air of mystery. It keeps things bottled up inside, hidden from the world. In color psychology the meaning of the color black is protection from external emotional stress. It creates a barrier between itself and the outside world, providing comfort while protecting its emotions and feelings, and hiding its vulnerabilities, insecurities and lack of self-confidence. In times of fear and uncertainty black contains the energy of the threatening unknown. In a positive state, black is seen as a restful emptiness into which anything may emerge and disappear once again. It is also mysterious, providing a sense of potential and possibility.
